Abstract

Blind slots for the control of air at the head-to-tape interface on a magnetic head can be produced inexpensively by using primary fabrication techniques instead of secondary machining operations.

Fabricating Inexpensive Magnetic Transducers with Blind Slotted Contours

      Blind slots for the control of air at the head-to-tape
interface on a magnetic head can be produced inexpensively by using
primary fabrication techniques instead of secondary machining
operations.

      Fig. 1 shows the simplest form of this design.  The magnetic
core support structure A would be produced by slotting an appropriate
material.  Slots B form the bleed slots and slot C forms a cavity
that allows insertion of the magnetic transducer D.

      Fig. 2 is an extension of this design which allows for greater
flexibility of bleed slot shape.  A again is the transducer support
structure with multiply bleed slots B, the actual transducer D, being
placed into cavity C.  A closure piece E is also added.

      Fabrication techniques would be used that produce a number of
slotted components for a larger blank.
